Manifesting Prosperity and Abundance
(This material was presented at a workshop in Tokyo, Japan, and has been modified by removing references to workshop exercises and materials.)
Your ability to have what you want, in a timely manner, is developed through fully recognizing the place within your conscious awareness where the inner and out dynamics that attract or manifest to your purposeful needs connect. It is important to manifest to “purposeful need” while keeping your mind centered on the innocent joy of attaining or manifesting. It is through joy that we acquire.
We will first focus on the single most prevailing currency of exchange between humans – money. This is important – money is not a cure for lack. It is an effective tool if used with thoughtfulness and it is not a cure for poverty consciousness. Interestingly, one of the biggest conundrums facing people of great wealth is how to effectively give their money away.
That said, most people that have a negative relationship with money do so because they are driven by scarcity from one point in the life to the next. They have alternating periods of lack and then money. Lack is a learned reality as opposed to natural state. The good news is that you can unlearn the thought habits that keep periods of ups and downs cycling through your experience. Regarding money: there are five things you can do every day to ensure that your future is not a repeating pattern from your past:
1 ― The first thing is to determine if you really want to be financially prosperous. I know that sounds odd, but most people who want abundance really only want to be relieved from having to worry about money issues. They want to be able to do what they want without having to budget or manage their finances. And, they almost always only think of money when they do not have enough. This attitude will never bring abundance and prosperity.
2 ― You must completely define personal prosperity. While giving this type of workshop over the past 30 years I have asked many people what abundance or wealth would look and feel like to them. Everyone has the more obvious idea of what prosperity is - mainly the acquisition of material goods. Few people connect personal prosperity to a certain range of feelings. If the primary range of feelings includes the need to impress others with an outward appearance of success, then you will not achieve wealth, you will go through repeating cycles of having and then losing.
3 ― The third thing is to be completely honest with yourself. Having prosperity and abundance is a selfish endeavor - you are wanting this for yourself. To be abundant you cannot live under the delusion that you want wealth to help others or do good deeds. You must be willing to do this for yourself only. If others benefit from your good fortune, then that is a matter of your generosity.
4 ― Having a consistent pattern of daily thoughts and actions that connect abundance and prosperity to your physical senses is vital. Certain colors, sounds, tastes, textures and smells reinforce a greater sense of abundance. The sense of smell, which is the primary sense that steers us through life, is a major driver in developing prosperity. If something doesn't smell right, it's not right.
Before we get to step five it is important to understand that you must be emotionally involved with your manifestation of a strong desire or purposeful need. In order to call the circumstances to you or manifest directly, it is also important to know that your desire cannot be to fix something. Many people want to learn to manifest in order to fix a circumstance or condition. This is not the type of emotional energy it takes to attract or manifest - the emotional energy used in these techniques must be clean and free of lack. Like attracts like - commanding power manifests to purposeful need.
The meditations and breathing techniques offered here are designed to help clear your emotional energy in preparation for manifesting or attracting to your need or desire.
5 ― The final step is to secure a complete vision of how your life will unfold once you have your desire or purposeful need fulfilled. Make a prosperity/abundance map of your vision – 2ft x 4ft is a great size. This can be made from images clipped from magazines or photographs you might have taken (see image below). Once you are done with that map, make a list of those people who would block any of the ideas included on your map, and then make a list of people who would support you. Even though they will not be directly involved in your process, they need to be identified as you determine where your inner and outer dynamics engage in your manifesting/attracting process.
This is extremely important - What we wish for others we automatically ask for ourselves. This is in keeping with the notion that what we ask for, and give to others, the unseen forces of creation automatically returns to us in equal portions. In order to manifest directly, or attract to a purposeful need, you must be free of any resentments you have toward those who would want you to fail or make it difficult to achieve your goal. Once you have attracted or manifested your heart's desire or purposeful need it is important to be grateful to all - even those who would want you to fail. Again, this is important.
Before you read this last tidbit please understand that you do not need to belief the following as a fact of life. It is also important to acknowledge those unknowable powers and forces that work in your favor to achieve intention as direct outcome. Those powers and forces will conspire to bring about your heart's desire or purposeful need as you release the past in favor of the now.
The Energy of Abundance
Everything in creation is equally consciousness and energy. As humans, we are very unique in creation in that the energy of our physical body is the collaborating point of awareness and consciousness. Our self awareness - our ability to recognize that we are observing that we are observing - is also very unique to this dimension, this Earth. That being stated, it is our attitude that directs the flow of chi into and around our physical bodies and it is our beliefs that form our overall conscious awareness of life. The thoughts we entertain direct the flow of our conscious awareness into the world. The details of our life experience is an out-picturing of our mind. We seek proof of our beliefs in the external world to satisfy our inner hunger to be right. As a result, we are self-fulfilling prophecies.
Some people are naturally able to connect with how their beliefs form their reality while others must learn that process. It is a simple process that can be made difficult by a lifetime of certain thought behaviors. If you are to be abundant and prosperous you will need to change how you think. The energy of abundance and prosperity overwhelms us when our thoughts and actions are one expression. This energy becomes a stream that begins with pure intention and ends in the unfolding manifestation of conditions and circumstances that reflect your mind.
Additionally - every word we utter is a call to action. Again, you do not need to belief in the unseen powers and forces that are constantly at play to effectively have this work for you.
Manifesting prosperity and abundance is exactly like the experience you have at a restaurant: you order your selection, the waiter takes your order to those who will prepare your meal. You do not need to personally know the cook or kitchen staff, nor do you need to oversee their contributions to your order. You simply ask and it is done.
It is important to explore:
Self-sabotaging thoughts and unconscious body behaviors.
Your family's conversations about money.
Your relationships to those who would want you to fail.
What prosperity type are you - money accumulation or philanthropy oriented.
Mantra Meditation and Breathing Technique
It is not easy to change your mind or establish new physical behavior routines. One of the most effect means to begin the process is the use of utterances. Because every word is a call to action - a command - it is easy to use words or utterances to affect our own change. There are several mantras that are used for prosperity. It is your focused intention while uttering these mantras that really do the magic.
Sanskrit Mantras for Prosperity:
SAT CHI ANANDA The existence, consciousness, bliss
OM GUM SHRIM MAHA LAKSHMIYEI SWAHA Salutations to Divine Mother who is the bestower of Great prosperity with the help of Ganesha.
OM ADI SHAKTIYEI NAMAHA Salutations to Divine Mother who is the Original Lakshmi
OM SARVA SAMPATI RUPINYEI NAMAHA Salutations to Divine Mother who is the embodiment of all Prosperity.
Focused Abundance Breathing Technique: Sitting in a comfortable position with your spine lifted upward and your chin in a gentle neck lock position. Sitting on a cushion in crossed leg position gives a natural posture to the spine. If sitting in a chair, put both feet firmly on the floor with your knees hips distance apart. In either position, your head should not be lifted upward and not resting against the wall or a chair back.
Place your left hand in Gyan Mudra - your index finger and thumb tips are meeting with the other three fingers pointing straight. Extend your left arm up at sixty degrees away from your body. Your palm is facing in towards you and the arm should be straight.
Place your right hand in Surya Mudra - your ring finger and thumb tips are meeting with other three finger pointing straight. With your elbow near your lower ribs, but not resting against your torso, bend your right arm so that your forearm is making a small angle at your right elbow joint. The right palm is also facing in and will be just below face level.
Make certain that the front of your shoulders are open - rotate your shoulder blades toward your spine.
Solar plexus activation - breathe a complete yogic breath, then pulling abdominal muscles inward five times on each exhale, mentally repeat the sound "RAH" with each inward thrust on the abdominal muscles. The sound should in your mind have the intensity of a lion's roar.
Do this for twenty minutes.
